This evening when I took it off, she was very good and made no attempt to bite. I decided that I would offer her a chance to express her opinion. After the cooler was off - she was loose in her stall - I held it up to her. She pinned her ears at it and bit it - hard! Then she put her ears up and sniffed it. I told her I would get her a new one very soon. I believe she appreciated the opportunity to express her opinion!

Dawn Expresses Her Opinion
I have a rule when I blanket or unblanket Dawn - no biting me even if she doesn't like it. She's gotten much better about this and mostly stands with a pleasant expression on her face. But she really hates her wool cooler - I'm using it because she undressed from her fleece cooler (from the inside out under her blanket) and stepped on it and tore it up a while ago. The wool cooler is a little too small in the shoulders and chest and I expect it is uncomfortable. When I put it on yesterday, after I walked away she expressed her displeasure by biting it near her chest.
